from jon mandel. attack, attack. and does not need a lot of substance, as long as you attack. we saw this in 2010. the paper that did not endorse me six years ago said that voting for jon mandel would be to award one of the nastiest campaigns ever waged in this state. i do not want just conservative talking points. i want to talk about what the ottoville ski mean, what does china policy mean? what do we do with community schools and colleges to grow jobs in this state? >> back to the audience for another question. >> senator brown, in light of the tremendous budget issues that we face -- [inaudible] cut some spending. how are you -- [inaudible] of >> this question was to whom? >> [inaudible] >> senator brown. did you hear the question? >> i did. i convene every year in washington college presidents to talk about how we can have better access, share ideas to have middle-class, working class kids go to college. one way we do not do that is more tax cuts for the rich. you have got to interesincreased interest on loans. has happened too much in the past decade when the whole government w

and disqualify the opponent. let's look at jon -- host: democrat jon tester. guest: a lot of people were grossed out by it but it was one of the very first ads he ran back in the spring. this race has been going on since probable march of 2011. you've got jon tester who won this seat in 2006 beating burns who was weighed down by a lot of ethics problems yet he barely won this race. the republican is congress unanimous denny. montgomery hals only one congressional district so he represent it is entire state. he's been a lieutenant governor voters know him pretty well. and this is a reist as republicans try and sort of dent tester's claim of independence that he votes in the interest of montgomery people and not his party. they bring up healthcare and the stimulus and d.o.d. frank. and democrats have gone after reeburg on character, that he's out for himself. that he thinking lobbying is a profession. in the past month it really has come down to character but this race has not moved more than two points in either direction in months which and what i'd like to say is these cabbeddats have got to fe
the way he hand that would thing in benghazi. thank you. host: caller jon in north carolina comments on the same lines as you. he writes benghazi is the storm that sealed the election. here is what the romney campaign is doing as they look at this storm. it says one of his senior advisors said despite impended wall to wall coverage on sandy he feels voters in the region have received enough information ahead of the election and reiterated the campaign's focus on the safety and well being for those in the storm's path. this is senior advice sor to the romney campaign. mat independent caller good morning caller: good morning. i was calling about president obama in regard to the hurricane. and i don't know people have short memories when florida got hit by a terrible storm and president obama was the first person to go down there and disperse funds. at the i forget, it was the governor of florida, i forget his name but he was republican and he embraced the president and shook his hand and hugged him. and right after that, the whole republican party pretty much disregarded and got rid of
super pac money and finally win against jon stewart after years of losing? here is my question. obviously, it will take time to change when things are so polarized. but with the new technology of the nets, where everybody has access, they can generally addressed this as an offsetting factor. is certainly does not need more money. we know that. but if i can do whatever i want with as many people as i can reach -- that is different again, and i like to quote from jefferson. it does make it different. ben franklin or somebody had to set that into print. now you really have an on limited ability to reach as many people who will read it. -- it really does have an unlimited ability to reach as many people who will read. >> the net is different from the newspaper. on the net, in infinite number of people could read your blog post. the difference is no one will come to your blog post unless you put money behind it. there are similar barriers. you could do of viral thing and it could take off. but the candidate, you're printing press is now has valuable as the future printing press beca
. then a debate between candidates for u.s. senate in montana. jon tester is battling republican congressman dennis rehberg. we will have that for you live on c-span. >> campaign 2012's debate hub website is the only place you will see our live coverage of behind-the-scenes sights and sounds before and after the debates. it has each debate question available as a separate topic. you can read political suites from reporters and others at c- span.org/debates/ >> c-span gives a great inside look into what happening in washington. whenever that happens, you are always surprised at what comes back to you and it kind of changes your view. it's different than regular media, because it's very effective and shows a lot of what is real and what's going on. i watched hearings and when the senate and house vote on different bills, we watch from the office. and when the supreme court has hearings, we watch different decisions and opinions on c- span. >> erin watches on directv. c-span, created in 1979, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> recently, henry de sio, the chief op
pleasure for me to be able to stand here for jon and introduce our speaker today. it's a testimony to the importance of north africa, to global security that the secretary of state has taken time to address this conference oh on the ma grab in transition. the forces that are surged through the arab world right now had many of their origins and some of the most promising opportunities for change in the region also have their origins there. we have also seen tragedy but we cannot forget that we've seen tremendous hope and it is that hope which mote vates us today. secretary clinton is no stranger to this topic and she has been putting energy into strengthening the u.s. bilateral relationships with the countries and the ties between those countries themselves since she came into office four years ago. her term as secretary of state follows a distinguished career in publish service as a lawyer in arkansas, as a first lady of the united states and more recently as the united states senator from the state of new york. she not only has the highest approval rating of any member of the u.s.
arizona pbs. it is about an hour. >> it is the first debate between candidates for the seat vacated by jon kyl. this is an open exchange of ideas, an opportunity for give- and-take between candidates for one of the state's most important offices. as such, interactions are allowed, provided that all sides get a fair shake and we will do our best to see that that happens. >> thanks, ted. i am happy to be with you and my colleagues. this is an opportunity -- the fact of the matter is is that over a year ago when my colleagues first approached me, the cops, the firemen and ems personnel, and said there is an open seat, you should run. the first thing i said, is i will run as far away from washington as i can. i have been there. i was not sure i wanted to go back to the dysfunction. the more i thought about it, i realized that we need leadership there. this gridlock has hurt our nation. we have a fiscal cliff. congress has stalled. i have been very fortunate in my life. my mom only wanted one of her kids to graduate from high school. i have been able because of a great country to get an educati
that as a way out of this. whether jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his -- wide jon cash explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. -- whether john can explain why this brief was not signed by his predecessor. >> it is so difficult to be a government official. you have to represent all of these competing interests. yes, you want to provide lawsuits that combine the -- provide accountability for bad human rights abuses. you want to uphold international law and prevent abusive reciprocal actions. in the first round of briefing, the administration filed a brief which people applauded. yes, corporations can be held liable for violations of international law. that was not a surprise. in the second brief, the administration sided with shell and said no this case should be dismissed. it is inappropriate for that statute to be used to supply jurisdiction for u.s. courts to hear a case brought by aliens against a foreign company in a foreign country for aiding and abetting the ax of a foreign government. you have the solicitor general of the united states arguing th
time on c-span. representative jeff flake trying to get the seat left by current senator jon kyl and richard carmona the democrat in that race. we're joined now by david corn, of course mother jones and out with a new ebook that 47% video of the word spoken by governor mitt romney at a fundraiser. the governor was asked about it yesterday when he was on cnn. i want to show a little bit of that and get your reaction what he's saying now about this video. [video clip] what i'm saying, words came out what's not what i meant. what i mean people understand that if i'm president, i'll be president for 100% of the people. my whole campaign is about helping the middle class have rising income and more jobs and helping get people out of poverty into the middle class. that's what this campaign is about. the wealthy are doing fine right thousand. they'll do fine most likely regardless of who's elected president. it's the middle class that's having a hard time under president obama. my campaign is about 100% of the american people. so describes what was stated in the paper is not referring t
is doing. actor report their ad buys. but they cannot actually talk and collaborate in that fashion. >> jon stewart and stephen colbert -- >> when they sit there and pretend to talk to their lawyer -- i would say that as a violation of the law. there are two other players worth mentioning. minor players. what is a super pac is opposed to a plain old pac. a good old fashioned pac can take only limited contributions, you are limited to how much money can give. it can do independent expenditures or give its money directly to candidate campaigns. that is what a pac is. and a final player is a generic 527. a super pac is a form of five to seven. a generic 527 -- we go back to 2004, the group spends money on the issue adds, sounding like political ads. the reason i mention this, it groups were not defined as 501(c)4 , it is not like in necessarily would have to go out of business, they would just because 527's. >> i think we officially lost the majority of the audience. i am serious about it. i do think this is the conundrum that we face. a year all serious. people do not come out and a manhattan
and foremost for us. thank you. host: we have an e-mail from tennessee. joyo verses jon verses jonna. guest: jonna put a smart e-mail there. most people to knock realize -- host: i think joy police that and that's why she's voting for governor romney. caller: good morning. the other night at the debate, the president's said that we were producing more oil and energy and stuff. how come the prices have not come down? i have a daughter that graduate with honors a year ago. she is having a hard time finding a job. i have a hard time voting for a president who doesn't respect the country. when the flag is there, he puts his hands somewhere else, not on his heart. i believe in the country. he doesn't respect america. host: have you always voted republican? caller: i voted for who i thought was the best candidate. host: who did you vote for in 2008? caller: i didn't vote for obama. 2004? guest caller: i voted republican. caller: can you hear me? host: you are on the air. caller: go back and look at history. i've seen the differences and the changes. i want people to go back and look at history. a
, at that time, jon voight was a democrat. i danced with him, and i was in my native state of wisconsin up in milwaukee. so i've been a regular supporter of the democratic candidates. host: molly ball, how many of the folks that you've seen in various ground operations are long-time supporters and people who have experience, like our friend in florida, versus people who are out there for the first time getting involved in campaign politics? guest: it's a mix. i think one really good point that can be made from that call is that when someone is in their own community, talking to people they know, that is so much more effective in terms of persuading people and convincing them to vote than anything that you get in the mail or see on television. people tune out a lot of this stuff. the robocalls, there's actually research showing that when a paid staffer calls you on the phone, that you don't know, and when a volunteer calls out phone, even when you don't know whether that person is paid or not, there's a difference in how persuasive that call is. when it's a volunteer who just wants to be th
in their commit to it meant early vote campaigns they have been doing -- he has been doing with gov. jon casey. governor casey is not appearing at this event due to numerous power outages in northeast ohio caused by the storm. the remains of 13 sandeep. we will hear from senator robb portlanman. we will have live coverage of this. it is tender 15 minutes away before it gets under way and we will have it here. a look at the october surprise in presidential campaigns. >> we turn our attention to the history of the october surprise. the event or events that happened before an election. joining us from their studios in washington. they get up and down about what the vote is. it is a long, storied, and mostly exaggerated history. why do we have october surprises? what are they? >> this notion of the last minute big moment that changes the trajectory of any given race, it started in 1972 when henry kissinger said that a couple days before the presidential election that there was a possibility of peace in -- for the vietnam war. it was seen as an effort to get those last few voters who were upset wi
, will he use that money to try to win the emmy from jon stewart? my real question is -- it is difficult to change. this is a time when things are so polarized. with new technology where everybody has their own axe to grind, address that as a dissuading factor. if i go home tonight, i can do whatever i want to as many people as i can reach. that is different from the time of jefferson. ben franklin are someone only needed to set that in print and now all you need to is to press a button. how does that fit into a campaign? >> obama cannot raise the money without technology. the net is different from a newspaper. you can say whatever you want an infinite number of people can read that. no one will know you wrote that unless you put money behind it or have a way of promoting it. there are similar barriers. you cannot say you're printing press is as important as someone else's printing press. it is more complicated. >> question surprised me. going to say we took a simple subject and made it murky. >> the person who will not read that article is the swing voter. the small donor psychology ma
about the $5 trillion tax cuts. on abc last night, jon karl said that is mostly fiction. multiple times. yes, both of them -- we are going to hear -- there wasn't much of a difference between both of them. i did not see obama differentiate himself -- >> you are planning to vote for mitt romney? >> yes, sir. >> thanks for the culprit last caller -- thanks for the call. at last caller on the independent line. >> i watched the debate last night on mute. >> did you watch it with closed caption? >> yes. i wanted to see the body language. i thought barack obama looked relaxed, a little too relaxed. overall, the body language, and then when i read the text, i think mitt romney shows a lack of integrity. that was the thing that kind of really bothered me, because he looked into the camera and said things that have been tested as far as being mostly false. i do believe that the president missed some opportunities. as a person who follows everything very closely, i did not want to hear something repeated, but i understand how people feel he should have used his rebuttal time in little more wisely
decide jon huntsman are shunned by their parties? >> it is hard to be a centrist in a partisan system. that is a bad thing. it is actually interesting. this happened in 2004 during my dad's campaign as well because he was considered relatively moderate. a candidate considered moderate at the primary stages, the activist far to the right or far to the left, and they have the belief that are obviously very conservative or liberal that a candidate will speak to. that whose -- that is who the primary system is appointed to. maybe that is why the system is flawed. it is difficult to speak to what you call the base, of course. it is difficult to speak to the electorate as a whole at the same time. you end up using the argument that i can win because the independents will vote for me. there is no one filling the hole in the middle. i guess the party should be producing the best nominee. >> since the repeal of don't ask, don't tell, there have been many advancements toward civil rights hit in the lgbt community. what changes do anticipate in the coming years and decades? >> my strong belief i
hoosier. but jon, you just said we pay for things in indiana. but when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things and i'd like to knoll how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> if you had spent the last 12 years here you'd know our budget has to be balanced. i produce balanced budget t and they were supported by our own lieutenant governor. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted five times, congressman, you you voted and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion with a b dollars. >> find key house and governor races on c-span campaign 2012. >> an update on hurricane sandy coming up at about 2:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a look at new hampshire. >> fst past week we've been taking a look at nine swing states and today we pu
at the studio are republican jeff flake and democrat richard carmona. they are both hoping to replace jon kyl, who is retiring after 18 years in the senate. our debate is more of an open discussion. no time answers. joining us is andrea kelly. thanks for coming in. >> we will start with health care. generally, republicans are in favor of repealing it. democrats are in favor of tweaking it. this has been an issue that has paralyzed congress. if you are elected, will there be any progress on this issue? >> when you are talking about repealing its, you are talking about repealing the president's health-care law. we should do that. we have got to reform health care. we need to do it in ways we can deliver health care more efficiently. the president's health-care law is not that. we have got to do toure reform, force insurance companies to compete across state lines, giving individuals the same pre- tax benefits. we have got to make it easier for individuals to assess health care options like a medical savings account. the president's health care law has made that more difficult. >> will there be
night's debate. let's wrap with a couple of a phone calls. this is jon on our republican line. caller: hello. i would like to say that all these half truths and the grain of the truth, mitt romney has done a lot of that. the problem i would like to talk about is hud, which is on the presidential can net -- cabinet. host: did you say hude? caller: yes. housing and urban development. where were they? host: in terms of mortgages? caller: doing their work. that should have been watching this -- frivolous houses when people did not have money. host: will be voting for -- >> i have concluded that i get more of the trip from obama. host: what did you vote last time in 2008? caller: i voted for bush. towardsu're leaning president, this time around? caller: yes, because i'm getting more truth. host: thank you for your call. we have been asking folks who you bought one of the debate. so far, the results look about like this. resident obama with 25,000 + voting. you can cast your vote on c- span and weigh in. next up, in south dakota. judy is on our democrats line. caller: i would like to expre
for being here. we wanted to start off by talking about libya. president obama was on tv last night with jon stewart talking about the killings in benghazi back in september. [video clip] >> as part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions, what happened within. i would say even you would admit it was not the optimal response at least to the american people as far as us being on the same page. >> if four americans killed, it is not optimal. we are going to fix it. what happens during the course of the presidency is that the government is a big operation. at any given time, something screws up. you find out what is broken and you fix it. what ever else i have done throughout the course of my presidency, one thing i have been absolutely clear about is america's security come first and the american people need to know exactly how i make decisions when it comes to war, peace, national security and protecting the americans. they will continue to get that over the next four years of my presidency. host: the president has gotten some criticism for the use of the word "
